Your Clubs Condition

Please read this carefully for a better understanding of our grading.

  • The shafts and grips also show indications of light use, generally only a few rounds at most.

  • Minimal to no marks on the topline (woods) and face.
  • Minor cosmetic marks may be present on the head/crown (woods).
  • Usual play-related marks on the face and sole, but it has been well maintained with no chips or dents.

  • Remains in decent condition but exhibits some cosmetic wear.
  • You may notice marks on the topline and head/crown (woods), such as faint sky marks.
  • Irons will display wear on the faces/grooves and heads, including minor stone chips.
  • Putters might have minor marks on the face/head, including minor chips on the sole, along with general wear and tear from regular use.
  • The shafts are in satisfactory condition but show signs of cosmetic wear.
  • Steel shafts may have a few small marks or rust spots, while graphite shafts may display some light bag wear.
  • Grips are still usable but may show wear marks and a slight loss of tackiness.

  • Still functional but exhibits substantial wear and marks.
  • You’ll find noticeable heavy marks on the topline and head/crown (woods), akin to deep sky marks.
  • The faces/grooves show significant wear, including larger stone chips or dents on the head.
  • The shafts are in a playable condition but show clear signs of wear and tear.
  • Steel shafts exhibit heavy rust spots or pitting corrosion, while graphite shafts bear substantial bag wear.
  • Grips show depression marks or some splits, indicating a need for replacement in the near future.

  • Unusable due to extensive wear and damage.
  • The head may display damage marks, cracks, or rattling.
  • Faces exhibit severe wear, including large stone chips or dents.
  • Missing brand badges, weights, or ferrules are also unacceptable.
  • Shafts show excessive signs of wear and tear, with steel shafts featuring significant rust spots or pitting corrosion.
It’s crucial for all shafts in a set to match in type and flex, and sets must be complete with no missing clubs (e.g., 7 iron, pitching wedge). Grips in an extremely poor condition will have a negative impact on the valuation.

Our FAQ's

Everything you need to know about our Golf club trade-in service.

Our team of trade-in specialists is extensively trained to deliver precise market rate valuations. They are well-equipped to guide you in accurately assessing the condition of your clubs, following our Condition Guides. Before seeking a quote and valuation for your clubs, kindly ensure that their condition does not fall under the 'Unacceptable' category.

In order to secure a precise valuation for your clubs, our team will need comprehensive details regarding their condition and the full specifications, which include: manufacturer, model, dexterity, loft, set configuration, shaft type, grip type, and the presence of a head-cover. Additionally, any custom fit options, such as length, lie angle, and grip thickness, should be provided for a more accurate assessment.

While we do provide valuations for a wide range of golf clubs, it's important to note that not all equipment may qualify for a trade-in. Some brands, features, or conditions may not meet our criteria for acceptance, and our team will be available to inform you if any of your clubs fall into this category.

The entire process, from the moment you accept the valuation, may take up to 7 working days. This duration encompasses the time required to organise the free return of your clubs, conduct a condition verification, and process your new order using the trade-in credit.

Should your golf clubs not meet the condition grade as stated in the trade-in quote, we will inform you of a revised valuation for your approval. If the revised valuation is not satisfactory, a return shipping fee of £4.99 will be applied to send your clubs back to you.

If you need further information, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Trade-In team.
